SOME GOOD NEWS!

HI EVERYONE!....I HAVE SOME GOOD NEWS!.....JIMMY CALLED ME AT 11:30 am, AS HE USUALLY DOES EACH DAY, AND HE TOLD ME THAT HE CAN NOW BE OUT OF HIS CELL FOR 17 HOURS PER DAY.......NOW THAT HE HAS A JOB AS A "RUNNER, " HE DOES NOT HAVE TO BE LOCKED UP IN THAT SMALL CELL, 8X9 FT, ALL DAY, EVERYDAY.  HOWEVER, HE WAS MOVED INTO ANOTHER CELL, WHICH IS UPSTAIRS, WHERE THOSE THAT ARE LET OUT OF THEIR CELLS ARE LOCATED.  HE IS STILL IN THE SAME SIZE CELL, AND NOW HAS A NEW BUNK MATE.  THERE ARE 3 OTHER FELLOWS THAT ARE RUNNERS, ONE OF THEM BEING MIKE, HIS FORMER BUNK MATE....MY HUSBAND IS A VERY ACTIVE MAN, AND SO THIS IS THE BEST THING FOR HIM...TRUTHFULLY, I CAN'T IMAGINE MY HUSBAND BEING LOCKED UP IN A SMALL PLACE FOR TOO LONG,AS HE LOVES TO MOVE AROUND, WALK, AND DO THINGS....SO, NOW AS A RUNNER, HE PASSES FOOD TRAYS, MOPS THE FLOOE, AND GIVES OUT SUPPLIES TO THE OTHER INMATES. 

WHEN JIMMY CALLED ME, HE WAS WRITING A LETTER TO A FRIEND.  JIMMY SOUNDS VERY HAPPY, AS IS ALWAYS HIS NORMAL SELF......HE ALWAYS MAKES THE BEST OF EVERY SITUATION......HE IS ALWAYS JOKING, AND HE MAKES OTHERS SMILE AND LAUGH........

WE ARE STILL COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS TILL PAROLE.....I HAVE THE CALENDER HE MADE FOR ME HANGING UP IN THE BEDROOM......IT IS 38 DAYS TILL PAROLE...............I STILL SEND JIMMY  A CARD EVERYDAY...I FOUND SOME UNIQUE CARDS IN A STORE, WITH BEAUTIFUL PIX OF ANIMALS, AND NATURE.  I HAVE SENT HIM SO FAR, A CARD OF A TIGER'S FACE, A JAGUAR WALKUNG IN FRONT OF A BIG MOON, AND TODAY, A BEAUTIFUL CAMP-SITE AT NIGHT..........I ALSO CONTINUE TO SEND HIM LARGE MANILLA ENVELOPES FILLED WITH NEWSPAPER CLIPPINGS OF THINGS THAT INTEREST HIM, AND COMPUTER PRINT-OUTS............WE BOTH ARE DOING AS MUCH POSSIBLE TO SIMPLY PASS THE TIME, AND NOT THINK ABOUT IT.

I ALSO SENT HIM 3 PAPERBACK BOOKS , THAT I ORDERED ON-LINE THROUGH, THROUGH BARNES AND NOBLE, SO HE SHOULD GET THEM IN A FEW DAYS....I'M SENDING HIM A LATIN GRAMMER BOOK, (WHICH HE REQUESTED), THE DAVINCI CODE DE-CODED, AND "MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA."........JIMMY JUST LOVES TO READ.......HE'S ABOUT THE ONLY PERSON I KNOW WHO HAS READ ALL OF JAMES MICHENER'S NOVELS......(THOSE BOOKS ARE OVER A 1000 PAGES LONG)........HE READ A FEW WHILE AT BAYSIDE PRISON....HE LIKES A STORY THAT IS FICTIONAL, AND YET HISTORICAL TOO...SO HE CAN LEARN FROM IT.

WELL, I'LL TAKE PRINCE FOR A WALK NOW, AS IT IS A BRIGHT SUNNY DAY!.................FRAN

HELLO FRAN, MY HUSBAND IS MICHAEL AND HE IS THE MAN YOU SPOKE OF IN YOUR JOURNAL TODAY. JIMMY AND MIKE SENT ME INFO ON YOUR SITE YESTERDAY AND I THINK WHAT YOU ARE DOING IS A WONDERFUL THING. THERE ARE SO MANY TIMES WERE I FEEL LIKE I'M ALONE AND I MISS HIM SO EVERY MUCH. MIKE WAS RETURNED FROM THE CLINTON HOUSE IN TRENTON ON CHRISMAS EVE DAY. HE WAS IN MIDSTATE FOR ABOUT TWO AND HALF YEARS, AND ONE YEAR IN THE HALFWAY HOUSE. AS LONG AS EVERY THING GOES WELL WITH HIS ADMINISTRATIVE MOVE HE SHOULD BE COMING HOME ON FEB.14TH. I REALLY DID NOT HAVE A GOOD DAY TODAY. I GOT A PHONE CALL FROM MY FATHER WHO LIVES IN CA AND HE HAD A STROKE YESTERDAY AND HE IS NOT DOING TO WELL. IT WAS LATE AND I ALREADY GOT MY CALL FROM MIKE AND ALL I WANT IS TO TALK TO HIM. SO IF YOU DON'T MIND IF YOU SPEAK TO JIMMY TOMORROW CAN YOU ASK HIM TO HAVE MIKE CALL ROBYN BETWEEN 12PM AND 1PM IF NOT I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SPEAK TO HIM UNTIL 5:30 AND I'M GOING CRAZY RIGHT NOW. JIMMY GAVE MIKE YOUR NUMBER TO GIVE TO ME IF I HAD ANY PROBLEMS THAT YOU CAN HELP WITH BUT I FEEL WEIRD TO CALL YOU. THANK YOU! I'LL WRITE AGAIN SOON :)
